J. Cole peeled back the curtain with his feature on 21 Savage's "A Lot." Now, some on social media believe that the powers that be are helping French Montana hack Spotify accounts to give his single a boost. Although the claim is far from verified, 50 looks to have caught wind of the theory and used it to go after French. 

Some background: Twitter user @karlamagne created a Twitter thread to try to explain why French's single, "Writing on the Wall" featuring Post Malone, Cardi B, and Rvssian, is having a resurgence on the charts. The user claims to be told that the spike is because the song is popular on Tik Tok. Yet, they feel as though this should lead to the song raising on all streaming platforms instead of "Writing on the Wall" being no. 1192 on Apple Music and no. 21 on Spotify.

This has led the user to believe that French Montana's record label is working with Spotify to hack into people's accounts and get them to play "Writing on the Wall." The user even searched for alleged evidence of the hack.

Although @karlamagne admitted that the thread is merely a conspiracy theory and rooted in little to no facts, this didn't stop 50 Cent from using it as fuel to continue his beef with French

Shortly after the thread started to gain attention, Fif took to Instagram. 50 appears to be referencing French Montana's reported attempts to get people to listen to his music by posting a stack of blank CDs.

"Somebody send this to wrench," 50 wrote under the picture. "Damn he gonna need the old apple to burn the new music though. LOL"
